Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen on Saturday called for international support in order to defend its island’s democracy following the recent threats from China and hoped international community to take serious steps and support Taiwan.

Taiwan president comments came several days after Chinese President Xi Jinping said that Taiwan was a part of China and the fact cannot be changed by anybody and that the citizens of both the countries over both sides of the Taiwan Strait should have “reunification”.

According to news reported by Reuters, in Taipei, Tsai said, “We hope that the international community takes it seriously and can voice support and help us,” giving reference to Xi’s threat to use several forces to bring the country under its control.

Tsai added saying that if the international community fails to support Taiwan, a democratic country, which was under China’s threat then “we might have to ask which country might be next?”

Taiwan stands the most sensitive issue for China and Beijing claimed it as its sacred territory. Since Tsai, a pro-independence Democratic Progressive Party, took office in 2016, Xi stepped up to force pressure on the democratic island.

On Wednesday, Chinese president has threatened and said China reserves rights to use its forces to bring Taiwan under the control but however, will assert to achieve a peaceful “unification” with Taiwan.

In a response to Xi statement and threat, Tsai said Taiwan’s citizens would never agree accept formula of “one country, two systems” proposed by China. Also, Tsai urged China to consider a “correct understanding” of what the island nation think and said political bullying would not be beneficial in cross-strait ties.
